OPD will remain closed in private hospitals in UP today. The government has prepared to deal with this.
- All other services will be stopped except Emergency and Kovid
- There is opposition to the implementation of integrated medicine in the country from 2030
The investigation of OPD service and pathology of thousands of private hospitals operating in Uttar Pradesh will be completely closed on Friday. Only emergency services and corona patients will be treated. In Pathology and Diagnostic Center, the work will be stopped for 24 hours. The reason for this is the opposition to the Ayush doctors being given permission to perform 60 types of surgeries and to implement integrated medicine in the country from the year 2030. The strike is also being done in UP on the call of the Indian Medical Association (IMA). Doctors in government hospitals have also assured support to the IMA. But the functioning there will not be affected.
The Indian Medical Association is unhappy with the decision of the Central Government and on 8 December, on the day of Bharat Bandh, it has expressed symbolic protest for two hours. Dr. Ashok Rai, President of IMA’s UP State Branch, said that it will remain in detention for 12 hours in all 15,000 private hospitals, pathology and diagnostic centers. It will start from 6 am Friday to 6 am Saturday. Emergency and Kovid services will be restored during this period.
IMA UP branch secretary Jayant Sharma said that the Ministry of AYUSH has given permission for 60 types of operations by training BAMS degree holders. IMA is opposed to this. Ayush doctors are being given permission to perform surgery by doing bridge course half-way. Along with this, preparations are being made to make them equal to MBBS. Along with this, the Central Government has constituted committees for Integrated Medicine.
There will be fatal consequences of making mixopathy
He said that allopathy, Ayurveda, Unani and homeopathy have their own distinct identity. In such a situation, mixing these together will have fatal consequences. In all districts, IMA officials will demonstrate and demand the government to withdraw this decision. He said that doctors of the government sector have also been called to join this prisoner, so they have also given an assurance, but the government hospitals will not remain closed.
Dr. Sharma said that this is the beginning of his movement. Together we will raise our voice against the cream brain of the country. Around 1500 doctors in the capital are affiliated to the IMA. These doctors are running hospitals ‚clinics‚ pathology ‚diagnostic centers‚ about 40 to 50 thousand patients reach them every day for treatment and investigation. Patients may have to face a lot of problems due to discontinuation of treatment services. According to Dr. PK Gupta, former president of the Indian Medical Association (IMA), the Central Council for Indian Medicine recently issued a notification. In this, Ayurvedic and other Ayush doctors have been allowed to do some surgeries.
